Another air gun trainer.

For those bullseye and Olympic style shooters, who don't want to stop practicing, due to ammo shortages and prices, check this out.
The Daisy 747.
It's actually designed for beginner airgun competitors, but it makes a first class home practice gun, too.
It's a single pump, so all that's needed is just pellets and the gun.

...and the 717 (which I have) isn't bad either. No match barrel but it's still one-pellet-on-top-of-the-other at parlor gun ranges.

That's the one I was really looking for, but got side tracked.

When I shot Bullseye I used a Daisey out in the garage and it was great practice!

Here's the link to a nice article on customizing your 717/747 with aftermarket sights, trigger mods, etc.

I haven't tried any of the mods other than a mild trigger tune.
